With the loss of Snowy, for the first time at keeping ferrets I lacked a Hob ferret. During March 2015 I received a telephone call from a veterinary practice asking if I would be willing to take a ferret that had been brought to them. No one wanted to claim him, so I agreed to take him. He was described as very friendly, but I was warned that he had been fetched to there by the owner of pet rabbits he killed, I understand he had broken into a rabbit pen.
Freddy along with Alfie has been taken to children's parties promoting ferrets.
He at one point required treatment for an abscess, which was successful.
As of November 2019 he is the cage mate of Vicky, enjoying one another's company.
